It’s true name is the Flavian Amphitheatre, but everybody knows it by the name of Colosseum. It is the symbol itself of the city of Rome in the world. It was built in 72 A. D. by Vespasian and finished eight years later by his son Titus. The Colosseum was comparable, for its time, to our stadiums, even if the performances were very different from those of nowadays. The Roman people gathered en mass to attend the Circus games (ludi circenses), where the gladiators fought each other.
